How do you go about seeing this film? It can't be viewed on the site, the regular files (mpeg 2 or 4.512 mp4, cinepack, etc) aren't there.

I think he expects us to download the ISO and burn a DVD in order to see his film.

Harry, if you want views, you need to make the film available in an easy to download/easy to view file format.

Try meeting your potential audience halfway if you want them to see what you've made.

Just a FYI from a guy who's been making indie films for 40 years...

Sound reasoning, Harry from a sound man. If you want us to see it, make it acessable. If we like it then we will download it to make a DVD and not the other way around.

Haha, well I don't feel very sound (of body, anyway), but thanks. I'd like to see his film, but there should be an easier way to do it.

I went to film school down the coast from San Francisco in the '70s, and it sure was a nice place to be in those days. Being a kid from Pittsburgh, SF sure was an eye-opener. Never saw so many hippie chicks in hot pants in my life, lol.

You are more than welcome cosmico. Besides you and the director of my film of "Secret", I don't know any other director personally.

I hesitate to call myself a director, I'm just a no-budget garage filmmaker. And I don't even have a garage anymore, so there went my studio. But thanks.

I thought it was interesting that Harry mentions he's making films in San Francisco. I shot so much film there around 1970 or so, but it's all gone now.
